Apologies if this query is in the wrong part of this forum.  So is the above a/c shown in this site:

                      ava.org.ru/shap/8gm.htm

an arrow wing?   Looks like it might be while the other plane doesn't, though I've been known to be
wrong on many an occasion....

Thanks!

Hi,
it is an arrow wing one, as you can see looking at the shadow on the ground. But are you sure that the number 5 is red? Looks white on the photo.
Strangely, the photo of the most recent plane was shown as first, while photos of other planes follow.

Hi Massimo,

Thanks for confirming the wing.  In my view, there appears a very wide silver or white outline around a fine or thin second shade like the star, but it did originally appear to me to be just white or silver.  Your
opinion on that carries more weight than mine....

Thanks again,
Jim

Hi Jim,
I've enlarged and contrasted the image, it could be that there is a white outline of the number but the inside isn't red, besides this could be an artifact of the .jpg compression that creates an increased contrast on the outlines. In absence of anything more clear, I would assume the number was white.

Hi Massimo,

White '5' it is; any idea if the wing is metal?

Thanks for taking the time!
